summer, republican governor rick snyder of michigan signed a bill to expand the use of telemedicine in his state. his new law requires that insurance companies have to pay for treatment that you get via contact with a doctor through like a web cam or otherwise online. it's telemedicine. governor snyder was so excited to sign this thing. he said at the time, "telemedicine offers an incredible opportunity to easily provide health care to michigan's elderly, disabled, and rural communities. i applaud the legislature's initiative to use technology to save lives." the bill got unanimous support. governor snyder signed it with his big happy statement about how awesome this was going to be. he was so excited. yay, telemedicine. telemedicine, you are the future for michigan. you are saving lives. that was this summer. tonight that same governor snyder is poised to sign another law in michigan that would ban the use of telemedicine in that state, specifically for one type of medical care. it's the same type of medical care provided at clinics in michigan that governor snyder is poised to sin
is again marching that day. he became a union organizer in michigan in the sometimes difficult and sometimes violent strikes of 1936 and '37. at the time workers in the big auto plants were coming home sick and injured and exhausted. and no matter how long or how hard they worked, they were coming home broke too. the auto companies didn't want unions, but the workers struck and they struck hard, and the workers eventually won. on february 11th, 1937, gm signed its first contract with the uaw, the united auto workers. if you called this contract the beginning of the american middle class and michigan the birthplace of the american labor union, and walter reuther the father of all that, you probably wouldn't be much overstating your case. mr. reuther was born in west virginia. he learned tool and dye making in a union family. he moved to michigan and found a job in the automobile industry. he found his life's work in helping its workers. he said, quote, there is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men there is no greater contribution than to help th
defecting, including michigan congressman justin amash who said yesterday, "if speaker boehner wants to come back to my district, he is not going to to be met with very much welcome." both striking a deal or failing to do so could cost him his speakership, but in the eyes of the american people, will he find a way to preserve consumer confidence and tax cuts for 98% of america or will he end up becoming the unseasonably tanned grinch who stole christmas? joining us on that note from capitol hill is nbc's luke russert. luke, you know, boehner is in sort of a no-win situation, right? if he cuts a deal, then the justin amash's of the world who politico put in the category of something that rhymes with bass coal, and if he doesn't cut i a deal, then the american people hate him and blame him for the tacks going up. what can boehner do? >> i think that a lot of that consternation on the right is going towards john boehner is a little bit overplayed. surely, there are folks who are angry at him, but his speakership is not in any serious jeopardy at this time. what i find interesting here, though,
because they're having to deal with these issues. we saw what happened in michigan yesterday with the republican leadership and governor there and right to work laws. so this creates a whole other dynamic of conversation that heritage with the demint at the top can put in conservative context. now that's the ideal strategy. i think there is some legitimacy that -- to joan's point short of the name calling. >> crazy wing nut may not be your phrase. >> i'm sorry, mike. >> you know, going to be close to watch to see exactly, given his leadership of this organization, do they become something nothing more than than a hatchet job for conservatives or are they principled arguments with that strong conservative undercurrent to them. we'll see. >> speaking of crazy wing nuts if we're talking about a potential move to the center, ann cull tour on fox yesterday, saying that the republicans need to understand they lost and make a deal with the president. let us take a listen to the choice piece of sound. >> are you saying then, for pr purposes, that they should give in to obama on the t
the message. >> plenty of spirit in michigan and not necessarily the holiday variety. labor supporters have a christmas greeting for the governor. >> speaking of greetings, have you sent your christmas cards yet? >> e cards for christmas? times have changed. i remember 8-8-88 like it was yesterday. . >> labor unions are sing an angry tune in motown. the signature on the right to work legislation makes michigan the 24th state to enact such a law preventing them from acquiring membership and dues. it's an important strike at organized labor in a strong union state. nearly in five workers are unionized. the massive protests with 12,000 strong reflect a backlash to what's happening in other parts of the country. it's not just wisconsin or ohio. they have become the latest scott walker. >> this guy who really looks pleasant enough, maybe it won't be so bad. the phrase right to work is a positive and up living message. can it do to unions? the law probably strengthens unions. >> if this is a right to work state, it makes it illegal for unions and employers to man tateidate that employees be part
of michigan on that issue today that we're going to be getting to. there is news about who is going to be in the united states senate in this next congress. we found out yesterday who is being tapped to replace senator jim demint, who is leaving the senate. we also found out yesterday who might replace john kerry if he leaves the senate to be secretary of state. we found out today who is the odds-on favorite to replace long-time hawaii senator daniel inouye, who died yesterday. we've got all that news ahead. >>> but we begin tonight with something that is an important story in its own terms. but for those of us at msnbc and nbc news, it is also an incredibly emotional thing. and i can tell you, it ends with good news. it ends with this news, which i can say personally was greeted by all of us as the best news in the world when we saw it. it's nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel, looking a little disheveled, a little less groomed than usual, but as you can see, looking like himself. on the left this is ghazi balkiz and john klooister, a long-time nbc news photographer. th
, or since. >> good evening, america. my name is jered townsend from michigan. to all the candidates, tell me your position on gun control as myself and other americans really want to know if our babies are safe. this is my baby, purchased under the 1994 gun ban. please tell me your views. thank you. >> senator biden, are you going to be able to keep his baby safe? >> i tell you what, if that's his baby, he needs help. [ applause ] i think he just made an admission against self-interest. i don't know that he is mentally qualified to own that gun. i'm being serious. look, this idea, we go around talking about people who own -- i'm the guy that originally wrote the assault weapons ban. look, we should be working with law enforcement right now to make sure that we protect people against people who don't -- are not capable of knowing what to do with a gun. >> time. >> because they're either mentally unbalanced and/or because they have a criminal record. >> time. >> anyway. >> we got one more question. >> i hope he doesn't come looking for me. >> that was july of 2007. joe biden was running for pr
. let's go to dan in michigan as i ignore the buzzer. dan. >> caller: hey, jim, thanks for taking my call and thanks for helping me trying to understand the stock market. >> my pleasure. ford which seems to be finally doing well. do you think i should hold on to ford or invest in toyota? >> no, i think europe could turn for them. they've taken their medicine. the united states is good. i think ford is going to finally run. let's go to dan in michigan as i ignore the buzzer. dan. >> caller: hey, jim, thanks for taking my call and thanks for helping me trying to understand the stock market. >> my pleasure. thank you so much for the kind words. >> caller: my question is about weyerhaeuser. symbol wi. it's close to its 52-week high. do you think taking some profits -- >> no, no! i think this is a great housing play. i think 2013's going to be big. wy, actionalertsplus.com, we are not a seller. we are a buyer! let's go to james in ohio, please, james. >> caller: yeah, hi, jim. this is james from ohio. >> all righty. >> caller: i'm a big fan of you. what's your opinion on next era energy?
michigan that you saw sent cnn a video he made where he cuts up his nra card. don? >> listen, about putting armed guards in school. that has been proposed before. so it's nothing new. and it's good at least they tried to do something. but they took no personal responsibility. and no intro aspects at all. it was disgusting to most americans. is there any evidence at all that putting armed guards in school will protect children? >> i mean, there just doesn't seem to be any evidence of it. certainly senator bloumenthal doesn't think so and we didn't get a chance to ask questions of the nra, because they didn't take questions from reporters. plenty of parents would not be comfortable with certainly having more guns in schools. for example, in the shooting at columbine high in 1999, don, you'll remember, there was an armed guard at the school, and 13 people died. now, still, there are plenty of gun rights supporters who think the nra's proposal will make schools safer and that gun control is not the answer. >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. >>> lots more on gun control. at 10:00, i'll tal
negotiations. let me bring in michigan congressman levin. nice to see you. so where do we go from here? >> i think speaker boehner has to decide whether he's a leader of a dysfunctional caucus or he's going to be a speaker of the whole house, work with democrats, go back and negotiate with the president. when the speaker says there's a perception that taxes were being raised, know the reality is under his proposal some taxes were going to be raised. and he has within his caucus a group that has really radicalized the republican party and his caucus who will not vote for any increase in taxes no matter what, even though we need that increase along with spending cuts. that's their problem. they have a radical group within their ranks. as steve latourret said it's a group that would rather be martyrs to the extremists than govern. >> you refer to congressman's remarks. i would like to play it because some of our audience members have not seen it. he's a republican and here's how he assessed what happened. let's play it. >> was there any pleas by any members to encourage them to go along with th
michigan, ohio going towards tomorrow. we will be watching this storm to trek eastward. two to four inches on top of what's on the ground in pennsylvania. this storm is also going to bring substantial snowfall across new england once again. you can see the legend showing us we're anticipating six inches of snow through the mountains into virginia, but then by the time we get to sunday, look at this, another pocket of heavy snow in central connecticut according to computer models as well as rhode island and the northfork of long island. that's what is interesting about long island, you will get snow in one part, 11 miles to the south it will be rain. many people are traveling this weekend that took the entire week off, they were on vacation. anticipating more snowfall for parts of new england. the storm setup for today, heavy rain through the mid south. snow popping up in the heartland again. again, this is an area that already saw plenty of snow this week. the colder air is plummeting down with temperatures for highs only in the 20s in kansas city and minneapolis, warming back up along the
rogers of michigan. chairman, thanks very much for coming in. so you've gone through this report. the classify, the declassified version, what's your reaction. >> well, a couple of concern. one of the concerns i have is, first of all, it certainly verified all that we had found, and we had talked about for weeks, of really what is gross negligence on behalf of the security directorates. and clearly to this report, there are other departments that were involved, i think, in that intelligence. that's clear to me in the report. >> because you told us the other day, gross negligence. those were the words you used. >> well, the one thing that concerned me is that the report said that we found all of those problems, but we find no one to have disciplinary action toward. that's concerning to me. that protects the culture. they blamed it on their bureaucracy. so if everybody is responsible, nobody is responsible. that's a huge problem. this was a catastrophic failure. >> because the report does say, security posture at that diplomatic mission, security posture that was inadequate for ben
michigan the latest right-to-work state despite protests from unions and president obama. >>> the rescue of an american doctor held captive by the taliban comes with a cost. a member of the elite navy s.e.a.l. team six is killed in the operation. >>> and apple adrift. some users of apple's much-maligned maps program end
